Wagner Drumline Keeps Beat At Percussion Event

The Wagner High School Drumline recently "rocked the house" at the Drum Corps International's regional event at the Alamodome.  The Wagner percussionists, along with their friends with Let Them Drum got to show their talents in the "Drumline Battle."  This pitted them against Arsenal Drum and Bugle Corps in a friendly competition of rhythm.  

The Wagner students got to kick off the big day with their Kick It In Leadership program, providing some great entertainment to get the event started off in the right way.  A big thanks to John DeNovi at Drum Corps International, Eric Hjellming at Sound Sport/Drumline Battle and Ralph Hicks at Let them Drum for providing this great opportunity. 

 

Metzger Band Makes Run At TMEA Competition

 

The Texas Music Educators Association's State Honor Competition has been going on and within the last several weeks the Metzger Middle School Band has been showing how good they are.  The band recently competed at the TMEA Area contest at Medina Valley High School. That put them up against some of the best middle school bands in south Texas.  We want to congratulate them on representing JISD so well.  They placed third and just missed out on advancing to state. But this is as far as any middle school in the district has gone in this contest in 31 years. The last time was Kitty Hawk Middle School in 1986 that placed 4th in state.  A big thanks to all the hard work the kids put in and of course band directors John Robertson and Bryant Aynes for guiding the ship this far.

Check out the new Metzger Band logo...an extension of the band's pride coming from their hard work. The district results below...region results below that. That is awesome everyone!

 

 

JISD Extravaganza Featured In NE Herald

The JISD Art Extravaganza is such a huge show that it's bound to get attention from the community and, as of late, also the media. It was the cover story on a recent edition of the Northeast Herald.  The story was a great piece on the variety and creativity of artwork and performances at the event that was hosted recently at Rollings Oak Mall.  A big thank you to everyone that organized and executed this event that featured virtually every campus in the district. JISD also appreciates the partnership with Rolling Oaks Mall in providing the great venue for this display of student work.

Woodlake Hills MS Performs Lion King

The Lion King was first a popular movie and then a delightful musical.  As incredibly demanding as the production is in music, acting and the technical production, the students at Woodlake Hills Middle School pulled it off with great flair.  At middle school level these student actors and actresses really showed some great talent and dedication to this production.  Congratulations to them and their theater teacher Adrianna Vela for bringing this show to Woodlake Hills families.
